COOPER WEBB WRAPS UP THE CHAMPIONSHIP AT BUDDS CREEK

The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross championship has not been an easy one to win, for the two-time supercross champion, Cooper Webb.  Webb was not in contention for the championship in 2015 after missing many rounds due to injury.  He then went into the 2016 season with a wrist injury.  Webb’s sheer determination and commitment seemed turned things around for him.  He got stronger and stronger with each passing race, which put him in a position to win the title with one round to go.  At this round, Webb’s title worthiness was tested to the max, as he had to come right from the back in both motos, to gain enough points for the win.  Webb amazingly came through to sixth in the first moto and third in the second, which granted him a well-deserved title win. 

Alex Martin won the first moto, and finished fourth in the second.  He was back up on the podium with a second place overall finish.  Plessinger took sixth overall and Harrison finished twelfth overall.  The rookie had his best moto yet; finishing eighth in the second moto. Jeremy Martin’s injury did not allow him to race.

WEBB TAKES THE OVERALL AND PLESSINGER HAS HIS BEST FINISH OF THE SEASON

The Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha team returned to the series eager to get results, after having two weeks off from racing.  The day started on a high, when it was announced that two Star riders, Cooper Webb and Alex Martin, would represent team USA at the Motocross of Nations.  After that the results began to flow, as Alex Martin qualified in pole position.  Cooper Webb then went on to win both motos, and Aaron Plessinger went three-three, for second overall; his first overall podium of the season.  Alex Martin crashed in both motos but was able to salvage seventh overall. Harrison crashed out in the first moto and finished seventeenth in the second; taking twenty-first overall.  The team’s defending champ, Jeremy Martin, was sadly missed at Unadilla after an injury kept him from racing.

YAMALUBE STAR RACING YAMAHA SWEEPS THE PODIUM FOR THE SECOND TIME THIS SEASON
